Panorama's MIMO desktop antenna comes in two versions - one with 2 TS-9 connectors works for signal enhancing a cellular mobile hotspot device with two antenna ports, and one with SMA connectors for use with routers.
MIMO (Multiple In Multiple Out) is the use of more than one antenna to increase signal performance. All LTE devices internally have at least two antennas to take advantage of this technology. This antenna is designed with two antennas inside its panel case, and then had two plugs that can go directly into a device with TS-9 ports (typically used on mobile hotspots like JetPacks and MiFis).
You can mount this antenna by sitting it on a desk or other flat surface, or with the included suction cups to a window most closely facing the cellular tower you're connected to, or by using the included clips to attach to the screen of a laptop. No tricky roof installation needed. It's portable and rated for indoor use.

Review & Testing Status
We purchased the older TS-9 version of this antenna (the 698-960 / 1710-2700 MHz band version) to test against our top rated Netgear MIMO antenna of similar specs. Our field testing results can be found here for our members who want to follow along:
